Having actually shot an AK I can tell you the muzzle clinb is not substantial at all. Is it more than the AR platform in 5.56? Yes, but not substantial.
Large-heavy compared to what? The 5.56mm? Sure. Compared to most .30 caliber rifles, it is a light weight.
As to the OP's question; The AK (when properly built) is capable of very reasonable accuracy in the expected operating range of inside 300 meters. I have seen a member's milled AK shoot tremendous groups (about MOA). That gun would smash most people's view of the AK and its accuracy.
